Stacey Solomon shows off Pickle Cottage bathroom transformation – but accidentally gives fans eyeful of loo full of wee
STACEY Solomon has a huge renovation project in hand after moving into her dream home, Pickle Cottage, and after tackling her bathroom toilet, she gave fans an easy guide online.
The Tap To Tidy queen documented the process for her 4.3 million followers – but fans got more than they expected when she accidentally shared a picture of her loo full of little things too.

All Stacey needed to make her bathroom glow was some blue paint and a set of white MDF wood panels that she had taken on a trip to the Wickes hardware store and hardware store.
Remodeling the toilet didn’t require any tools at all, as Stacey explained in a step-by-step guide that she would glue the panels to the wall using No More Nails.
The Queen of Tap To Tidy shared a video of her at work on Instagram, joking, “I am fully aware of how unnecessarily excited I am, there is nothing I can do about it. So I’ll cover the bottom half with these MDF panels and no more nails.
“And paint the top half a nice blue color to match the sink.”

First she cracked with the paint and gave the bathroom an instant face lift with a splash of pastel blue around the top half of the walls, which were originally a matte, off-white color.
Stacey said, “I cut and painted. I’d rather cut without tape, I tried both today and I’m tidier without tape.”
Moving to the paneled lower half, Stacey explained, “Then I stopped sticking nails on the back of the panel and just put it up to make sure the grooves were tight.”
“I started the toilet pipe in here because I couldn’t get inside, so I need to see two pieces that fit on the ends.”

Stacey added that she’s putting a dado rail on the panels to finish them off, and she’s ripped open the dated red carpet in hopes of replacing it with either tile or wood.
She also switched the wooden toilet seat, revealing, “I felt gross and looked like there was something in the toilet with the brown seat all the time.”
Thinking about it, Stacey found that she had hilariously posted a picture of the toilet without it being flushed, and clearly apologized to her 4.3 million followers just covered in urine.

“None of my kids know how to flush the toilet for any reason, so I’m sorry you had to see this.”
With the bathroom toilet still in the works, Stacey said, “That’s how far I am today, tomorrow I’ll cut some trim to fit in the gaps and put the rail around [and] decided what to do with the soil.
“I had to pull up the carpet, it made me sick and then the funny piece, I can only furnish.”

Fans raved about the transformation and sent messages to the X-Factor star telling Stacey how “amazing” she is and how they wish she could take on DIY projects like she does.
Insisting the process was quick and super easy, Stacey replied, “There’s nothing you can’t do, it’s a little bit of No More Nails, a little bit of color, and if you ever wanted it, 100% can be yours Percent. I promise. “
It comes after tackling the pool in the back yard of her new £ 1.2 million home that hasn’t been used in years and required a lot of TLC.
Outdated bathrooms, dirty pools, DIY wedding invitations – there’s no job Stacey won’t do.
